    Caster Carts for 4" Wide Fork Tines

    For those with other brands of forks with 4" wide fork tines and interested in Caster Carts, I need to know what the thickness of your fork tines are at the heel of the fork (right next to where it bends). The 4" wide forks we have are 35mm thick (1.4"). If the carts are designed for only this thickness, they may not be useful for someone with thicker forks. Please take a measurement when you have a chance and post here, PM me, or email.

    Thanks

    Are your forks 42", 48" or other? Are the longer forks thicker at the base or bend in order to support the same load further out?

    Chris,
    I know not many people probably do this, but I store my bucket on my forks when I do not need it. I assume that I will/would no longer be able to do this with your casters in place due it throwing off the balance of the forks? My current barn is not large enough to put everything in a different spot.

    I'd really need to see a photo or more description of how exactly you have it set on the forks but I don't think it's as bad as you might imagine. If nothing else, I can sign you up as a beta tester.

    I would be glad to beta test. I can get a better picture, but since my gator is ...... STILL NOT HERE........ My bucket is on the tractor and full of gourds.

    Here is my make shift picture.

    Please don't all ask me to photoshop stuff at once.

    I would guess the bucket might put a slight amount of weight to the front of the forks?

    I will get you a better picture later Once I get my Gator from John Deere...(Think they are listening?)
